Many people will be happy using Vine without wondering why it looks the way it does, but if you're curious about things like the lack of a "record" button or bottom menu bar, head over to the Vine blog to read co-founder and creative director Rus Yusupov explain how the app was built. "Old things are beautiful, but new things should look, well... new," says Yusupov. "That's why Vine doesn't have a play button. It also doesn't have a pause button, a timeline scrubber, a blinking red light, or dials and a brushed-metal finish to give you the impression that you're using a dusty video camera."
